But that's not even true. The GUI also includes the C code of IEMGUI, the 
C code of objectbox, messagebox, gatom, comment, the C code of canvas 
(which is the longest and toughest part), the C code of arrays, the C code 
of drawpolygon, drawnumber, scalars, etc.

And the GUI's C code has a lot more meat to it than the Tcl code. I should 
know, because I rewrote most of the C GUI code in Tcl already, and I 
rewrote (with Chun) essentially all of the Tcl GUI code already as well 
(including the whole of the Tcl code that Hans didn't touch).
